by Sarah Di Lorenzo

Created by clinical nutritionist Sarah Di Lorenzo, The 10:10 Diet is a 10-week meal and exercise plan aimed at helping you lose 10 kilos and keep the weight off in the healthiest way possible.The 10:10 Diet not only outlines an easy-to-follow 10-week program to lose 10 kilos, but it goes behind the program to explain the science and logic that were used to create it. Devised by clinical nutritionist Sarah Di Lorenzo, The 10:10 Diet outlines the factors that contribute to weight gain and how to eliminate or respond more effectively to them. The roles played by stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy food options, mental and societal roadblocks and other factors are explained in layperson's terms, and Sarah draws from both her own experience as a single mother of three and those of her clients to demonstrate methods to overcome obstacles standing in the way of weight loss. Rejecting the notion of fad diets, Sarah has crafted a manageable, achievable program aimed at people with busy lifestyles who will feel the benefit of a new commitment to their health by the conclusion of the 10-week program, and have the knowledge and understanding to maintain their new habits in the future.Praise for Sarah Di Lorenzo 'I want you to know that with Sarah&’s help, you WILL reach your goal weight. But more than that – you WILL keep it off. Plus, your mind WILL be clear, and you WILL have energy in abundance. Put simply, you WILL feel amazing.' Monique Wright, journalist and TV presenter 'Sarah showed me how to do something I hadn&’t been able to do in years… lose those last, stubborn few kilos that annoyed and frustrated me. She gave me a healthy plan to stick to, with no tiresome calories counting, just good food. And the best thing was, it could be changed here and there as my days suddenly got busy. It was like having a little friend in my phone, with the perfect eating plan and then the back-ups in case life got in the way. I can&’t recommend her highly enough.' Natalie Barr, journalist and TV presenter. 'Sarah admits I am her most needy, intractable and ravenous client. To succeed, she needed more than science; it was a medley of psychology, stealth-health, tofu-trauma therapy and round-the-clock chocolate intervention. I bombarded her with memes of starving walruses and thought our friendship was beyond repair when she informed me my Cadburys smorgasbord would be replaced with HALF a protein bar (I can still feel part of my soul dying as I sliced it in two). I did it gracelessly and grudgingly and yet Sarah stripped off 16 kilos in 8 weeks. Stop reading and urgently buy her book.' Matt Doran, journalist and TV presenter 'Over the years I&’ve bought every health-kick book there is – macrobiotic, vegan, &‘eating right for my blood type&’ – some I barely made past the first day, others the first... page! Now, thanks to Sarah, I&’ve finally found what works for me! Her detox approach is a celebration of food and feeling your best. No punishment, restriction or radical plans. Instead, a clear roadmap to restoring your best health, based on actual science (thanks to the countless medical studies Sarah loves to read). The most surprising result – I&’m still following its principles long after my 10 weeks are done. The other books are binned; Sarah&’s plan has become a way of life.' Sally Bowrey, journalist and TV presenter

Astronomical Mindfulness: Your Cosmic Guide to Reconnecting with the Sun, Moon, Stars, and Planets

by Sarah Scoles Christopher G De Pree

Using the power of the sun, moon, stars, and planets, this unique, illustrated guide is filled with engaging exercises that deepen your knowledge of the solar system, help you take necessary pauses every day, and foster a renewed sense of presence in the universe.Thousands of years ago, when we humans lived together in communal caves, we told stories about the stars. When we later took to the seas, we used stellar positions to navigate and pinpoint our place in the world. When we eventually stopped migrating and settled on land, we relied on the constellations and the Sun to plant and sustain crops. Yet today, we modern humans have lost this deep connection to the cosmos that was once central to our daily lives.Astronomical Mindfulness helps us reconnect to the solar system once more, guiding us through the fundamental ways in which our planet moves through the solar system and how these motions determine our perception of time and place. Offering a concise yet in-depth look at the Sun, the Moon, the planets, and the stars, it teaches us to observe and understand the elements comprising the celestial sphere—deepening our lives and helping us become more informed, engaged, and mindful every day.The best part: you don’t need to climb a mountain, visit an observatory, or even own a telescope. From an apartment rooftop to a city park, from your backyard to the window by your desk, the skies are accessible to everyone. Astronomical Mindfulness is a unique tool for personal growth essential to coping in our modern world, enabling us to be more present, more connected, and more relaxed simply by looking up toward the stars.

The Book of Tiny Prayer: Daily Meditations from the Plague Year

by Micah Bucey

Bearing witness to the first year of the COVID-19 pandemicWhen New York City went into lockdown in March 2020, spiritual leader Micah Bucey found the world and himself in desperate need of prayer. While social distancing created disconnect, Bucey began a daily practice of writing a “Tiny Prayer” each morning and posting it on social media, each offering a reflection on what was going on in his own heart and in the wider world. Soon, a solitary practice became a communal one, with others engaging and sharing the prayers that touched them most, suggesting issues and topics for future prayers, and creating connection across a digital divide.Over the course of a year filled with fear and faith, protest and possibility, Bucey composed prayers for frontline workers and activists, those lost to illness and wins for democracy, for civic leaders, celebrities, and everyday emotions. While overwhelm threatened to engulf us all, these short meditations invited a combination of attention and intention in bite-sized form that aided the reader in focusing on one issue at a time, from the rise of infections, hospitalizations, and deaths, to police violence, social justice uprisings, immigrant detentions, catastrophic climate events, mass shootings, and violent right-wing insurrections. Now, all 366 “Tiny Prayers” are collected here, together forming a chronicle of a specific moment in time and modeling a form for everyone to compose their own tiny prayers to engage the everyday around them. The Book of Tiny Prayer recalls a very particular year, but its spirit is universal, inviting all to quiet themselves, name the pain and the joy around them, and recommit to the change required for collective liberation, during the worst times and far beyond.

The Boundaries of Human Nature: The Philosophical Animal from Plato to Haraway

by Matthew Calarco

Are animals capable of wonder? Can they be said to possess language and reason? What can animals teach us about how to live well? How can they help us to see the limitations of human civilization? Is it possible to draw firm distinctions between humans and animals? And how might asking and answering questions like these lead us to rethink human-animal relations in an age of catastrophic ecological destruction?In this accessible and engaging book, Matthew Calarco explores key issues in the philosophy of animals and their significance for our contemporary world. He leads readers on a spirited tour of historical and contemporary philosophy, ranging from Plato to Donna Haraway and from the Cynics to the Jains. Calarco unearths surprising insights about animals from a number of philosophers while also underscoring ways in which the philosophical tradition has failed to challenge the dogma of human-centeredness. Along the way, he indicates how mainstream Western philosophy is both complemented and challenged by non-Western traditions and noncanonical theories about animals. Throughout, Calarco uses examples from contemporary culture to illustrate how philosophical theories about animals are deeply relevant to our lives today. The Boundaries of Human Nature shows readers why philosophy can help transform not just the way we think about animals but also how we interact with them.

This book is such a beautiful tribute to the different stories and experiences we go through as brujas. . . . Amplify the voice of Witches of Color by reading their stories." —Juliet Diaz, author of Witchery and Plant WitcheryThere is a new kind of witch emerging in our cultural consciousness: the bruja.Witchcraft has made a comeback in popular culture, especially among feminists. A growing subculture of BIPOC witches, led by Afro-Caribbean immigrants, Indigenous Americans, and other witches of color, is reclaiming their ancestral traditions and contributing their voices to the feminist witchcraft of today. Brujas chronicles the magical lives of these practitioners as they develop their healing arts, express their progressive politics, and extend their personal rituals into community activism.They are destigmatizing the "witch" of their ancestries and bringing persecuted traditions to the open to challenge cultural appropriation and spiritual consumerism.
